Looking good so far. As for cutting out the windows with that saw, I have another way if you have a Router and are not worried about re-using the wood from the cut sections. Plunge the router into the wood where the opening is located and then pull it to the frame. Now follow the frame around and the piece will fall out. Di it from the outside obviously This is how we did it when I was builing "camps" for the oilfields

A couple people offered to come over and help Saturday. It ended up being a blessing in disguise.

By the time I got back, they had finished the wall and started measuring for the lower roof rafter. On sunday my father in law came over again around 10am and we started on sheathing and finish all we could on the roof. We sheathed over the windows and will go back and cut them out with a reciprocating saw. I still need to get a ridge board up and a roof rafter template built. I'll be going to get the framers square this week along with some other things. Let me know what you think. :)
